Standard 2: Students demonstrate knowledge of movement concepts, principles, and strategies that apply to the learning and performance of physical activities.

Standard 3: Students assess and maintain a level of physical fitness to improve health and performance.

Standard 4: Students demonstrate knowledge of physical fitness concepts, principles, and strategies to improve health and performance.

Standard 5: Students demonstrate and utilize knowledge of psychological and sociological concepts, principles, and strategies that apply to the learning and performance of physical activity

  • Gym shoes are highly recommended to safely participate in Physical Education. It is recommended that students bring a pair of sneakers they can change into.

  • Wearing of jewelry is discouraged to prevent injury and loss.

  • Students should wear clothes that permit freedom of movement that they are not afraid to get dirty.

  • Students are recommended to bring a sweatshirt/jacket for outdoor activities during cooler weather.

  • Girls should wear shorts or leotards under dresses in order to participate safely.


Weather permitting, students will be outdoors. In the event of unfavorable weather/air conditions, students will be indoors. The decision will be based on the Air Quality Index (AQI) Asthma Friendly Flag Program:

  • Green – Air outside is “good” and considered healthy for everyone. Outdoor activities will be permitted for all students.

  • Yellow – Air outside is “moderate” and unhealthy for only extremely sensitive children and adults. Outdoor activities will be permitted for all students.

  • Orange – Air outside is “unhealthy for sensitive groups.” On ‘orange days’ sensitive individuals should limit prolonged outdoor exertion. Activities will be modified.

  • Red – Air outside is “unhealthy” for everyone. On ‘red days’ sensitive individuals should avoid outdoor activities and alternative indoor activities will be made available to all students.


A parental note requesting students from not participating in physical education activities will be honored for a period of no longer than one week. A request for a longer non-participation period will require a doctor’s note. All notes must be turned into the site health clerk in the morning.

Please notify your child’s school of any medical necessities or relevant medical history. The PE staff works closely with each sites health clerk to meet each student’s health needs.


Action plan for when an expectation is not followed.

  1. Verbal warning

  2. Timeout from Activity

  3. Notify Principal/Contact Parent

*As the physical education teacher, I have input on a student’s overall physical education grade.
